The Ministry of Culture Thailand, in partnership with aMBUSH Gallery, Casula Powerhouse and Assajan Collective, invite you to participate in a very special presentation and workshop at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre on Wednesday, 30 August from 2pm.

The in-depth and interactive workshop will allow participants to explore the various performance roles, and exchange ideas with the highly skilled performers themselves.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity! There are only 100 seats available, all free of charge, but registrations are essential.

Proudly presented by aMBUSH Gallery, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and Assajan Collective.

Program:
